Nice piece of hardware
“This tripod seems well made, as it should be for the price. It is nicely finished and operates easily and smoothly. The quick-release plate is round and is latched/unlatched with a setscrew, so it’s not as fast to assemble as one with a directional shape and spring-loaded latch, but it’s still easy to operate and seems secure. Comes with a nice padded case and Allen wrenches.” – By Mac
“Tripod is solid and smooth. The quick release latch requires your full attention to ensure it is properly seated and tightened, but once in it’s there. No built in bubble level as stated in description. For the price it’s what you would expect. Not disappointed!” – By Digger

The Giottos VGR8265-MC Vitruvian Carbon Fiber Tripod is a lightweight 5-section tripod with added value.

It has independent leg positions for positioning your equipment in unusual orientations, and is easily converted from a tripod to a monopod simply by unscrewing a tripod leg, removing the center column and joining them together.
